Gore’s cables are ideal for rideshare cube satellite programs.
As the NewSpace industry moves towards smaller, low-cost satellites and vehicles with fast-paced designs and frequent, inexpensive launch capabilities, W. L. Gore & Associates is standing by with a technology path forward for system and harnessing engineers. Highlighting our extensive materials expertise and decades of proven spaceflight heritage, our high data rate cables are reliable, affordable and delivered quickly to meet demanding low Earth orbit (LEO) and medium Earth orbit (MEO) program schedules.
ESTABLISHED HIGH SPEED SOLUTION FROM A HERITAGE SUPPLIER
Low and medium earth orbit environments require cables to perform under considerable stress that can risk their crucial ability to transmit data, compromising launch vehicle and satellite systems. The emerging NewSpace industry needs mechanically and electrically durable cables that continue to perform reliability so we can stay connected and monitor the earth. Government and commercial companies also need affordable cables manufactured quickly to meet demanding program schedules.
By combining extensive materials expertise with decades of proven traditional spaceflight heritage, Gore offers a reliable, affordable high data rate solution delivered fast for NewSpace applications.
HIGH-QUALITY SIGNALS IN DURABLE DESIGN
GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables are purpose-built for dataline applications like high-resolution cameras, digital signal processors, onboard computing, and more. They carry high-quality signals reliably and accurately at data transmission speeds up to 1 GHz. These cables offer balanced lines with controlled impedance at 100 ohms. Their serial, point-to-point datalines with LVDS (low-voltage differential signaling) also support ECSS-E-ST-50-12C and TIA-644-A requirements.
But, we don’t compromise on the strength of our cables either. They’re constructed with unique fluoropolymer materials that can endure extreme conditions, like shock and vibration, chemicals, radiation, temperatures ranging from -200 °C to +180 °C and more. Yet, our materials are lighter weight to help meet challenging mass budgets and tighter installation paths.
Durable, low-profile construction of GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables
GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of NewSpace applications, including:
- digital signal processors
- high-resolution cameras, sensors and detectors
- high-speed subsystem interconnections
- onboard computing
If you have any questions or to discuss your specific application needs, contact a Gore representative today.
